A car crashed into the wall of a semi-detached house in Siglap on New Year's Day (Jan 1).

Responding to queries by Stomp, the police said they were alerted to an accident involving a car along Coldstream Avenue at 5.17pm.

No injuries were reported.

Stomper Derek, a resident in the area, said he looked out of his window after hearing a "big bang".

Photos that he submitted to Stomp show the damaged wall, as well as police and Singapore Civil Defence Force officers at the scene.

Derek told Stomp: "A resident of a detached house crashed his car into his neighbour's semi-detached house opposite.

"I heard that he mistook the accelerator for the brake, hence the accident."

Police investigations are ongoing.
